bogosian as an example is also 22 and he has the personality that will mature into being a captain.

are there any examples of a player who had Kane's personality type after 4 years in the league and matured to become an NHL captain?

even disregarding his off ice demeanour...i don't see his on ice character as that of a captain....he's generally one dimensional and not terribly aware of his teammates on the ice....a great player for sure, but not a rounded player like a captain usually is.
It's actually refreshing to see a 21 year old kid act like a 21 year old kid and not a middle aged man.
He has plenty of time to be "mature". Let him enjoy youth.

But really, who cares if he becomes a captain? Being a captain doesn't equal passion and that was the topic of the thread.
